Khajur Ghughra Recipe - How to make Khajur Ghughra


Prep Time : 31-40 minutes

Cook time : 31-40 minutes

Serve : 4

Level Of Cooking : Medium


  • Refined flour (maida) 1 cup

  • Semolina (rawa/suji) 1 1/2 tablespoon

  • Ghee 4 tablespoons

  • Salt a pinch

  • Milk 1/4 cup

  • Stuffing

  • Dates seedless chopped 1 cup

  • Coconut scraped 1/2 cup

  • Cashewnuts chopped 7-8

  • Almonds chopped 7-8

  • Green cardamom powder 1/2 teaspoon


Step 1

Sieve maida into a bowl. Add rava, salt and ghee and mix with fingertips till mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Knead into semi-soft dough with milk and sufficient water.

Step 2

Once the dough is ready, cover it with a damp cloth and keep it aside for half an hour. For stuffing, roast scraped coconut in a thick-bottomed kadai till lightly browned.

Step 3

Add dates, cashewnuts, almonds and green cardamom powder and mix well. Let it cool. Divide into sixteen portions. Knead the dough once again and divide into sixteen small balls.

Step 4

Roll out each ball into a circle, place a portion of the filling. Apply a little water on edges, and start folding the edges inwards in small twists to form a tight seal.

Step 5

Heat sufficient ghee in a kadai and deep-fry the ghughras on medium heat till crisp and golden brown.

Step 6

Drain onto an absorbent paper and allow to cool before storing in an airtight container.
